Here's what some of them have to say about The Guide:
"In these times of economic turmoil, an unrivaled tool like The Official Vintage Guitar Price Guide is essential. It has become a trusted standard that is meticulously updated by vintage dealers for vintage dealers. Its expansion into more-recent, custom, and limited-edition instruments makes it all the more invaluable." - Vallis Kolbeck, GuitarVille
"Prices for vintage guitars have been a real roller coaster ride lately. That's why you can't afford to be without The Guide." - Howard Leese
"The Official Vintage Guitar Price Guide is a reality check. If I get carried away with enthusiasm when I buy a cool new guitar, I check what The Guide says about recent transactions and value. I can't know about every kind of instrument, and the Guide helps me sort through information on guitars that are not my specialty. The market is moving and changing fast, so it's reassuring to have a reference that makes sense of our little world of vintage guitars." - Larry Wexer, Laurence Wexer, Ltd.
